Hi….. Still in old Tainan City. More specific, in one of the little alleys off Fuzhong street.

In fact, it was a weekend and there were many street stalls along the street. You could see a lot of interesting things that are sold. Not sure about weekdays though.

Towards the end of Fuzhong Street, I saw this shop selling skewed food; they put a selection of food on a skewed and customers will choose what they like and dipped it into hot soup and when it’s cook, they can choose to dip it in variety of gravies. In Malaysia, it is called lok lok. What’s it call in Taiwan? Any guess?

Customers are spoil with some many choices…… =)

A walk in Georgetown Heritage Area … (part 1)

Took a day off today and brought my son to town and be a tourist for the day. It was interesting as we had never taken the bus in town as most of the time I would drive and park and then drive.

This time I wanted it to be different. Park my car at one of the mall and took the free shuttle bus that will pick up the passengers at allocated places. There are about 19 stops in total and it goes in a loop. We were kinda lost at first as we were not sure where to catch the shuttle bus but eventually we found one of then and that’s when our trip began.

As always, any where you walk in Penang, you will be able to find food at every corner. More on the food in my food blog. Follow it there on this.

The first stop was the oldest Anglican church on the island; St George’s Church.
